Hugh Evans, CEO, Global Citizen said: “In bringing the Global Citizen Festival to Germany for the first time we are calling on the G20 to take action and responsibility for moving forward on the Global Goals. They have had two years to address the Goals, and while some leaders are stepping up, others are engaging with empty promises. As Global Citizens, we do not accept this; we do not accept the status quo or believe these issues are beyond our capacity to fix. With the support of the international community and our partners convened in Hamburg this July, the G20 leaders will hear our call. Together we will make a lasting impact for generations to come.”
